The Renault brand is increasing its ambitions by announcing a range of 100% electric cars by 2030 in Europe, while Dacia will wait.
During the presentation of the Renaulution plan, the new CEO Luca de Meo displayed new ambitions. In July 2021, Renault was aiming for around 90% electrified sales for 2030, therefore including the hybrid. For 2022, the brand is burying the nuance and increasing its forecasts.
Luca de Meo spoke this week at the Technocentre on Renault’s new objectives according to AutomotiveNews. The boss now announces what many were waiting for a date for 100% electric.
It will be 2030, like the rival brand Peugeot, or even Ford and Volvo. Warning, this only applies to Europe, the Losange will continue to sell petrol, diesel or hybrid vehicles in other markets.
If Renault advances its metamorphosis into battery-powered cars, it is to preserve Dacia. The brand of low-cost vehicles cannot completely switch to electric before a significant drop in costs.
This is why De Meo has confirmed that the Dacia thermal and hybrid will continue after 2030. He added that the entire electrification will be ” as late as possible “. Today, only the Dacia Spring is 100% electric in the catalog, and no other similar model is planned before 2024.
To initiate this transition, we must accelerate, because 8 years is already tomorrow! 2022 will see the appearance of the new electric Kangoo E-Tech, 2023 the SUV derived from the Mégane E-Tech.
The electric Renault R5 will mark the year 2024 before an electric R4 which will also have its utility version. For professionals, the Trafic E-Tech van will complete the offer.
Reminder, the brand of sports cars Alpine is already on the electric track. It plans 3 new products in 2024 in collaboration with Lotus: compact type R5, SUV and coupé replacing the A110. Finally, the Mobilize firm will market the Limo sedan for taxis and VTC, then the Duo micro city car and the Hippo utility vehicle derived from the Renault EZ-Flex.
